Silk

Acrobat, assassin, spy, merchant, etc.

Description:

Aspects:

Origin: Born Prince Kheldar of Drasnia, Silk entered the Drasnian academy at a young age, training in espionage and intelligence gathering.

  • Life is a Game
  • Sardonic Wit

Tribulation: At some point, his mother, a renowned beauty, contracted a disease that left her blind and horribly disfigured. Silk began avoiding Drasnia in order to avoid the pain this caused him. During this time, he established himself a fantastic reputation in the espionage world.

  • Avoid/Evade the Issue
  • Did You Just Offer Me a Challenge?

Legend: According to the Mrin Codex, Silk is a member of the party chosen by the Prophecy of Light. He is referred to as “the Guide” and “the Rat”.

  • Even I Have Standards
  • The Things I DO For You People

Hero: Mistress Victory’s unorthodox method of fighting appeals to the acrobat in Silk. A little bit of showmanship is not only fun, but demoralizing. Not to mention that dropping a chandelier on someone is quite useful when attempting to make a getaway, once his cover’s blown, of course.

  • When Opportunity Knocks…
  • Setting the Stage

Society: Stealing an entire shipment of weapons isn’t easy… no wait, this is Silk we’re talking about. Yes it is. But that was only an means to the ends of retrieving a Borg corpse from the Geth.

  • The World is My Business
  • Man of Many Roles

Latest Mission: Someone is attempting to cut a chapter out of the Book of the Multiverse (or, to put it another way: a branch of the multiverse!)! But just because we know which branch doesn’t mean we know WHERE. Worlds are big places, after all.

  • Aura of Economic Improvement (This is not a full aspect. Instead, it “boosts” an aspect by making the implausible plausible)

Strength/Weakness

There’s a Backdoor in Everything: Silk can spend a fate point to declare the location of a back door in the current scene. This can be used even if it has been previously established that there is no back door.
Claustrophobia: Due to a traumatic experience that involved phasing through solid rock, Silk is extremely claustrophobic. Caves tend to trigger this more than crawlspaces.
